Vincent Laresca was an American actor with a multitude of television and film credits under his belt. Born in New York City on January 21, 1974, he made his professional acting and film debut in "Juice" (1992) alongside Tupac Shakur. Laresca made his television debut, like so many others, in a 1994 episode of the venerable "Law & Order" (NBC, 1990-2010), which he would return to as another character in a 2004 episode. He played Abra in Baz Luhrmann's stylish Shakespeare adaptation "Romeo + Juliet" (1996), and continued to work in TV and film until he landed the role of Navarro in "K-PAX" (2001). Laresca played perhaps his most recognizable role, recurring character Hector Salazar, on "24" (Fox, 2001-10) in 2003 and 2004. He appeared in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" (2005) and played Alejandro on the first season of "Weeds" (Showtime, 2005-2012). Over the next decade, Laresca appeared in many high-profile procedural shows like various installments of the "Law & Order," "CSI," and "NCIS" franchises. He made a funny, yet brief, appearance as a construction worker in "The Amazing Spider-Man" (2012), and starred in procedural drama "Shades of Blue" (NBC, 2016) alongside Jennifer Lopez.
